Dear This Old House,
Even when the work hasn't gone as planned, we've gotten a lot of pleasure out of fixing up the 1849 house we bought three years ago here in Lexington, Missouri. Now we're hoping someone will snatch up this 1840 Greek Revival in our neighborhood and give it some TLC. The two-bedroom house—once owned by a U.S. marshall appointed by President Lincoln—still has the original features that made it a knockout; the classic center hall, the front door with sidelights, and the fine walnut millwork are just a few examples.
Shown: The 1,840-square-foot two-bedroom Greek Revival is located in a national historic district. Its center hall and symmetrical floor plan are typical of the house's style.
